Upcoming Releases from MGB

MGB’s 2019 schedule has been set since early in the year, but we’ve been relatively quiet about it until now. We’ve three new titles plus a bonus that we’ll reveal first. While this might not sound like much, it is for an up-and-coming publisher, and we’re more than ready to share.

First, the bonus, and this doesn’t count toward this year’s new titles. Our second release of 2018, Cleaning House, the initial title in Jeanne G’Fellers’ Appalachian Elementals Series, will be released as an audiobook in late June or early July. It will be available on both Audible and iBooks. We’ll share the exact date as soon as we know.

 

Now to this year’s new titles. Release one, July 8th, will be Keeping House, the second novel in Jeanne G’Fellers’ Appalachian Elementals series. Cent Rhodes is back, and she’s diving deep into her past to save herself and the future of everyone on Embreeville Mountain.

Here’s the official blurb: Centenary Rhodes is caught in a deal she didn’t make. Thanks to her eternal lover, Stowne’s, quick thinking, she’ll live forever, but there’s a hitch. Cent’s now fey, and three months out of the year she’ll live on the other side of Embreeville Mountain among the Hunter Fey, serving their king, Dane Gow.

As Cent begins wading through the anachronisms that come with being a Hunter, she learns that nothing is what it initially seems. Cent shares several past lives with Dane, who wants her back, and Stowne’s lied to Cent so many times that she’s having doubts about their marriage. To make matters worse,  the past Hunter Kings are influencing Dane’s behavior, and the youngest Hunter, Brinn, might well be the most dangerous of them all.

It’s going to be a cold, dark spring, and Cent needs to unite both sides of Embreeville mountain before her eternal life, her relationship with Dane, and her marriage to Stowne come permanently undone.

Northeast Tennessee Publisher to Release Locally-Set Holiday Novella

Mama, Me, & the Holiday Tree set for November 5, 2018, Release

Jonesborough, TN, 11/23 /2018 – Mountain Gap Books, Jonesborough, Tennessee, is proud to announce the upcoming release of their fourth title, the Contemporary Fantasy novella Mama, Me, & the Holiday Tree by multi-award-winning local author Jeanne G’Fellers.

 Blurb: A dozen handmade holiday ornaments, that’s all, but it might be an impossible task.

Centenary Rhodes and her mother are at constant odds. It’s one of the many reasons Cent left home when she was eighteen. Mama’s difficult for anyone to manage, but now that Cent’s back home, she has to try. Mama, however, won’t acknowledge who Cent’s become, even though she’s repeatedly been shown the truth.

It’ll take more than popcorn strings and paper snowflakes to heal the rift that’s formed between Cent and Mama. It’s going to take bushels of patience, heaps of magic, and assistance from everyone on both sides of Embreeville Mountain to reset the Balance between them.

But with Yule and Christmas just around the corner, it might already be too late.

New Release: Cleaning House by Jeanne G’Fellers

It’s finally release day for Cleaning House – A Contemporary Appalachian Fantasy by Jeanne G’Fellers!

Here are a few excerpts from the ARC reviews.

Cleaning House is available online in both print and ebook form and through the Our Books tab above.

Centenary Rhodes is an old soul with a well-traveled name, but she doesn’t know this yet.

Growing up in southern Appalachia wasn’t easy, so Cent left home as soon as she could, but the post-collegiate happiness she’d expected has never occurred. She can’t find a decent date, much less find that special someone and, after losing her job in a corporate downsize, she’s struggling to meet her most basic needs. Her car has been repossessed, her bills are piling up, and her questionable North Chicago neighborhood is dangerous to navigate.

Returning home to Hare Creek, Tennessee, never crosses Cent’s mind until her Great Aunt Tess contacts her with an offer she can’t refuse. The family’s southern Appalachian homestead must be sold, and Aunt Tess needs someone to clean it up. Cent will have access to Aunt Tess’ garden and truck and can live on the homestead rent-free for as long as it takes. A part-time job is waiting for her as well.

It’s a chance to solve some of Cent’s financial woes, but will her return be enough when evil sets its sights on Embreeville Mountain and the homestead?

 Cleaning House is a carefully woven Appalachian tapestry of granny magic, haints, elementals, and the fantastic diversity of the human condition – served with a delicious side of fries and a generous quart of peach moonshine.
